Pretty Nostalgic Meets Vintage & Handmade

Many of our readers & visitors will know all about the fabulous Pretty Nostalgic Magazine & Society. You may remember that they launched at a previous V&H Fair where many vintage lovers snapped up magazines & memberships. No longer just a magazine, Pretty Nostalgic has evolved into a Society of dedicated Nostalgineers - those longing for the simple & charming ways of days gone by. 

The Vintage & Handmade Fairs are proud of our association with PN & we are delighted to announce a fun new collaboration which will launch at the Spring Fair on the 23rd May in Chipping Sodbury.
The Pretty Nostalgic Society will be taking over the stage at this event to bring you all sorts of interesting activities & information.

Just some of the fun to be had on the day....Nicole & friends will run an upcycling activity, using recycled haberdashery to decorate Alice bands and make brooches etc.

There will be a make do and mend exhibition of antique and vintage items which have been mended and repaired or were used to mend and repair.

They will host a crochet creation competition with a theme - everyone who enters will be given a free magazine and a prize will be given to the winner

There will also be crochet and knitting advice and a drop in and learn area.

The stage will be set with tables & chairs so you can sit & try out an activity, chat about vintage & handmade & make new friends.

In addition, the first 50 visitors of the day will be fortunate enough to receive a copy of this wonderul publication to take home & treasure, so do come along & join us & the Nostalgineers for a truly lovely day out.
